Afghanistan's booming drugs trade under Taliban rule – BBC News

With economic collapse in Afghanistan, the country’s drug trade appears to be booming.

Afghanistan has long been linked with the production of opium and heroin and is also now a major producer of crystal meth.

The Taliban say farmers cannot be banned from producing drugs for now because there are no alternative sources of income for poor families.

Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Secunder Kermani and cameraman Malik Mudassir.

    The Nato let them grow that to not lose the support of the locals. As soon as they tried to prohibit it they lost the trust and gained new enemies. The Taliban made the same experience in the 1990s.

    1 John 5:19
    "We know that we are from God, and the WHOLE WORLD lies in the power of the Devil!"

    1 John 2
    “Love NOT the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is NOT in him!”

    “For all that is in the world, the lust of the FLESH, and the lust of the EYES, and the PRIDE OF LIFE, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

    “And the WORLD PASSES AWAY, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the WILL of God abideth for ever.”

    James 1
    "If any of you lack WISDOM, let him ASK of God, that giveth to ALL men liberally, and withholds it not; and it shall be given him."

    "But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed."

    "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."

    "Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:"

    "But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away."

    "For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its flower falls and its beauty is lost. So too, the rich man will FADE AWAY in the midst of his pursuits!"

    "BLESSED is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the Crown of Life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him!"

    "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man."

    "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his OWN lust, and enticed."

    "Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth SIN: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth DEATH!"

    "DO NOT ERROR… My beloved brethren!"

    "Every GOOD ACT of giving and every PERFECT GIFT is from above, coming down from the Father of LIGHTS, with whom there is no variation or shadow of shifting."

    "He chose to give us birth through the WORD OF TRUTH, that we would be a kind of FIRSTFRUITS of His creation."

    "My beloved brothers, understand this: Everyone should be QUICK to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger!"

    "Because human anger DOES NOT produce the RIGHTEOUSNESS that God desires!"

    "So get rid of ALL the filth and evil in your lives, and HUMBLY accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the POWER TO SAVE YOUR SOULS!"

    "But be DOERS of the word, and not hearers only, DECEIVING your own selves!"

    "For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a DOER, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass."

    "For he beholdeth himself, and walks away, and immediately forgets what manner of man he was."

    "But who looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a DOER OF THE WORK, this man shall be BLESSED in his deed!"

    This has been happening for 20 years. In 2007, 93% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan. By 2019 Afghanistan still produced about 84% of the world market.

    The question is why now? Did the US tell the media not to report this when they ruled Afghanistan?

    I watched a documentary that’s like rah – If the Taliban ban something they destroy 10% of the crops but anyway ion even know what to say

  • Mothiur Rahman

    Total BBC nonsense. The Taliban was reported by the world media that they reduced the opium growers whilst under the occupation the drugs trade flourished. Even the Afghan army was under influence of drugs whilst fighting against Taliban.

  • Sayed Ahmad

    BBC stand for bias bowl caca ….. why you do not say that drug production started when the conquistadors attacked afghanistan in 2001 …..

  • Anna

    Is possible they can plant lavender? I watch a previous video showing how people are to help coal and mine get better by using lavender which can grow in poor condition soil. Lavender are used in many products so it won't be problem of people not needing it anymore. Even if temporarily, it better then letting the people of afghanistan have no choice to use drug use plants for income.
